Update – March 2017
Imagine my surprise when I saw the scaffolding at the National Gallery of Canada. What is it? An art exhibit? I had to go back and take the shot. Even the renovations are artful. Those workers look like LEGO characters. It’s great!
Great Hall Windows Replacement
2013 marked the 25th anniversary of the National Gallery of Canada’s building on Sussex Drive, which although still magnificent is now in need of some maintenance.
The building underwent some crucial repairs, including the replacement of all windows enclosing the Great Hall and the reconstruction of thirteen roof assemblies within the skylight.
Here are some pre-construction images for you to enjoy! The Ottawa photos here are part of a collection starting at $5 and available for immediate download. Have a look at the Portfolio on Mostphotos.com.
Here is the National Gallery of Canada in all her glory and the Notre-Dame Cathedral on Sussex Drive. If you visit Ottawa, it’s a must and, free on Thursdays. Now that’s a great deal!
